Smart Communications is now offering LTE Handsets

Smart has added to LTE enabled Android phones in their line-up and offering them on LTE Plans! The phones are the ZTE T82 and the Sony Xperia V.

As for the plans, UnliData Plan 1500 includes 60 minutes of voice calls and 120 SMS to all networks, with 1.5GB of data. UnliData 2000 includes 150 minutes of voice calls and 200 SMS to all networks, with 2.5GB of data. Verified with Smart's CS. After hitting the data cap, speed will be slowed down.

Right now, you should only really be considering the Sony Xperia V which is being offered on a promo free at Data Plan 1500 & UnliData Plan 2000 until January 30, 2013. After that you will have to add Php6,500 to get the phone free at UnliData Plan 1500. The ZTE T82 is offered free at Data Plan 1500 & Data Plan 2000 which is its regular price.

So for now, lets just look at the Sony Xperia V.

The Sony Xperia V is powered by Android 4.04 Ice Cream Sandwich. It has a 4.3-inch display with a HD resolution (720 x 1280).  Inside is a dual-core 1.5GHz 28 nm Krait processor which can pretty much keep up, and sometimes out perform, the quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 (HTC One X) and Samsung Exynos 4 (Samsung Galaxy S III). The phone only comes with 8 GB of internal storage, but that is expandable vai a MicroSD card slot. The phone also packs a 13 MP camera. The 1750 mAh battery on the Sony Xperia V is a bit smaller than I would have liked, but lets see how it performs before laying judgment
